Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd has seized upon the government’s inertia over broadband infrastructure with his announcement that he will use Treasure Peter Costello’s so-called Future Fund to finance a comprehensive national broadband network. No sooner does he announce this, when we now have news of a new star recruit in Greg Combet joining the Labor party - after having previously doused suggestions that he would be joining Labor.

One wonders if this constant shifting of ground in the news media opens Rudd to the accusation that he is unable to sustain debate on policy. Is it too much for ordinary Australians to keep up with; is Rudd surfing the electorate like he does the net?
